Hand signals at great gig with Rumbon D'Esquina @La Pica

You know you’re at a special gig when the horn section includes Mr. Trumpet and Bonegal… The crowd at La Pica danced to two sets of fiery Puerto Rican salsa sounds from Rumbon D’Esquina until wee hours of the morning. During the fast, hectic music, Tony gave hand signals to the band members from the side of the stage. He’d let us know it was time to  move on to different sections of the songs, cueing the horns to play the Mambo using the classic rockers horn sign, holding down his middle two fingers with his thumb. Tapping his forehead with closed fingers and thumb meant it was time to play the Mona section. Finally, he’d call the end of a song with his raised fist, indicating “out.”
